We all know that the internet is a wealth of information, but it can be overwhelming as well. Where do you start? Contrary to most everyone’s advice when it comes to research, I’m going to say that google is not where I would advise you to go. If you type in “home staging”, you’ll end up with an extremely broad search which includes home staging trainings, certifications, and way more information than you’d care to review. To narrow down your search, you may want to try being more specific with your key words. Some examples are “effective home staging tips” or “creative home staging ideas”, but I’ve helped you out by compiling a list of the top 5 websites to get great home staging ideas and tips…enjoy!
- HGTV.com – The leading authority in the Home & Garden arena. The site is packed full of great information and inspiration. In the search bar, type in “home staging” to tap into the rich resources available.
- FrontDoor.com – this is HGTV’s real estate site and it is in beta mode. Type in “home staging” in the search bar to find specific staging information, but there are a lot of other fantastic resources as well.
